Newbies first ride

Hi guys
I just got hold of my ATAS yesterday and took it for a ride, love it despite getting caught in a hailstorm.
It certainly is a tall bike. Very happy with my choice. Sold my Guzzi Norge, so a complete change of bike style. Just need to get the settings sorted out now, where did I put that manual.!
Just need to get a top box on now.

Congratulations on your purchase. My wife and I also purchased an AT. This is my only picture so far. But more to come. Don.

Congratulations, I also bought an ATAS a few weeks ago, absolutely love it. I'm getting the suspension set up on Tuesday.

Welcome to the club... but please, don't ruin it with a topcase!

Great looking bike! Congrats on the new bike and enjoy it. By any chance did you consider the DCT version?

I'm with Deltabi. A top box to me looks like an after thought. It makes the bike look ugly myself. I'm making a plate and backrest combo. Strap down a bag behind backrest like the older bikes? I'll post a pict when it's done. DON.

Awww. The guy likes his top case so why piss on him (her) and post a pic of your POS in front of some dump?
